Scouting report

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Cincinnati Bengals
Despite a huge win for the Bills, Josh Allen's fantasy numbers were modest. He threw for only 172 yard, though he did have two touchdown passes. He also threw two interceptions. Once again, his rushing numbers helped boost his fantasy day. He rushed for 41 yards and a touchdown.

Allen faces the Bengals who are ranked 22nd in aFPA to quarterbacks. That ranking is misleading because Cincy has played much better defense over the last two months.

Start Allen as one of the top fantasy quarterbacks for Week 17 as he continues to put up fantasy numbers, even when he doesn't play his best on the field. We expect a shootout with AFC seeding on the line.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Chicago Bears
After some average fantasy outings in recent weeks, Josh Allen played like the best quarterback in the league last week. He threw for 304 yards, 4 touchdown passes, and ran for 77 yards. It doesn't get much better than that and shows why Allen is always ranked in the top five each week.

Allen has a road matchup in Chicago who is ranked 26th in aFPA to quarterbacks. The winter weather shouldn't affect these two teams who are used to it so we expect Allen to take advantage of this favorable matchup.

Start Allen as one of the top fantasy quarterbacks for Week 16 as he and Patrick Mahomes are the two quarterbacks in the NFL you can count on every week.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Miami Dolphins
Josh Allen had a season-low 147 passing yards but made up for it with a decent rushing performance for 47 yards and a touchdown. He also had one passing touchdown. Allen has stayed away from the turnovers for the most part, but he also has had issues with pressure as the Bills offensive line hasn't been sharp over the past month.

Allen faces the Dolphins who are ranked 25th in aFPA to quarterbacks. Miami won the first meeting of the season in South Florida where Allen threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns. The X factor here is weather as Buffalo will be cold and windy.

Start Allen as a top-five fantasy quarterback for Week 15. Even with the weather, the matchup is very favorable against the Dolphins and we saw what Allen did to them the first meeting.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. New York Jets
Although Josh Allen completed 66.7% of his passes, it was fairly a quiet day for the Buffalo offense. He threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns but only had 20 yards rushing which of course is a reason Allen is always a top-ranked fantasy quarterback. The good news is he has cut down on his turnovers with only one pick in the last three games.

Allen will face the Jets for the second time this season. In the first meeting, he was held without a touchdown pass and threw two interceptions, but he did rush for two scores. New York is ranked 1st in aFPA to quarterbacks this season.

Despite the tough matchup, start Allen in all leagues and formats as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback once again. This time, they play the Jets in Buffalo and he should be better than the last outing against them.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at New England Patriots
Josh Allen threw for 253 yards and ran for 78 yards for a very good fantasy outing. He threw two touchdown passes and ran for another. The Bills offense continues to play well so even when Allen has an off game, he still is one of the top fantasy quarterbacks every week.

Allen faces the Patriots for the first time this season. New England ranks 17th in aFPA to quarterbacks. He had mixed results against the Pats last year being held to 145 passing yards the first game, but threw for over 300 in the second meeting and playoff game.

Start Allen as the No. 1 overall fantasy quarterback for Week 13. The rushing numbers continue to push him to that ranking on a weekly basis.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Detroit Lions
A least the turnovers went away for a week, but everything else wasn't good for Josh Allen's fantasy day. He threw for a season-low 197 yards and only one touchdown. To top things off, he rushed for a season-low 7 yards as well. So, even though the arm issue seems to have disappeared, Allen's fantasy numbers have fallen off at times. At least for what you expect from him.

This week might help him get back on top as the Lions are next up and are ranked dead-last in aFPA to quarterbacks. This is a short week on the road and that might be a negative.

We love the matchup and think Allen will be the top fantasy quarterback for Week 12. Start him in all leagues and formats.

BUF QB Josh Allen - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Cleveland Browns
Josh Allen threw for 330 yards but only had one touchdown pass and two interceptions in the home loss to Minnesota. That's now six picks for him in the last three games. That has been the focus of the national media this past week but fantasy managers should be more concerned with only one TD pass the last two games. On the bright side, he is averaging 85 rushing yards over that span.

Allen faces the Browns next who are ranked 16th in aFPA to quarterbacks. Obviously those touchdown and interception numbers aren't ideal but the rest of his numbers have still been very good.

Start Allen as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback again this week. We feel he will continue with good numbers and will find the end zone on several occasions vs. an average Cleveland pass defense.
